View the President's Schedule

East Room in the morning to meet with Jim Roosevelt & all the March of Dimes poster children from the beginning until the present—many of course now grown up. This years little charmer drops her crutches in a second to be picked up and then she promptly kissed me & told me I was cute. Awarded the Presidential Civilian Award (Medal) to Elmer Staats of G.A.O.—retiring after 42 years. This was the 3rd medal given since it’s inception in 1969. Ec. Council meeting and meeting with Al Haig. The grain embargo is coming to a head. We shouldn’t lift it unless the Russians show some signs of being decent—still it’s hurting our farmers I fear worse than it’s hurting the Russians.
